Jean Paul Forest

Through the work of the Tahitian artist Jean Paul Forest, the final room of the Oceania exhibition displays a continent rooted in contemporaneity, far removed from the age-old folk clichés to which Oceania is too often reduced.
Jean Paul Forest has lived and worked in Polynesia for many years.  The Tahitian valley of Papeno’o provides his energy and his inspiration, as well as the river-polished pebbles which form the basis of his creations. On the borders of land art and of minimalism, his works – stones broken and stitched together, twisted pebbles, works installed in the landscape – witness the transience and the fragility of an ecosystem perpetually at risk.
